Treatment of Skin Diseases
A Practical Guide
This book summarises the key clinical features and their treatment across a range of skin diseases and describes the decision-making process when referring patients to specialists. It describes how treatment of the skin is often very different to other specialities, as both topical and systemic medications are used, and reviews the clinical signs, investigation and diagnostic approaches to skin diseases.
Treatment of Skin Diseases: A Practical Guide principally aids primary care physicians, trainee dermatologists and dermatology nurse practitioners, but it is also a convenient management guide for allied health professionals, students and hospital-based physicians. A concise atlas of diagnostic photographs is included and incorporated with a simple set of common differentials to provide a useful reference for primary care readers and those training in dermatology. The book also contains information on the management of common skin problems, together providing a comprehensive introduction to the treatment of skin diseases. The treatment options for secondary and tertiary care are also included to provide a thorough picture of the spectrum of dermatologic therapeutics.
